It's a cute movie Abbey Lincoln is very stylish, shy yet smart as well and Sidney Poitier was clever, smooth, hip and does wonders with his expressions LOL. There is this scene where Beau Bridges says something pretty racist and I was thinking... "Wow! did he just say that?" but Sidney's face conveyed a pause... (like he took his measure of Beau to keep to himself for later) then moved smoothly along in the conversation. As a african american watching this movie it reminded me that there are so few movies out there that potrays black love in such a positive way and I know this was a old flix but it still was a surprising pleasurable find. I didn't know what to expect but it will go on my classic favorite list of movies for sure. I highly recommend it.
5 STARS WITHOUT A DOUBT!
is touching, sincere and honest throughout. Beau Bridges is excellent as a young, irresponsible man who prefers to meddle in other people's lives than straighten out his own tangled web. Carroll O'Connor is most effective as a successful businessman who tries to keep his maid, Ivy, happy in her position and also, tries to retain his sanity in dealing with his irresponsible son, Beau Bridges. Well-filmed and a pleasure to watch. Poitier and
Abby Lincoln work well together -- almost charismatic!
Movie shows romance, courting, seduction, realistic people & dialogue. You watch and enjoy this movie.
The manipulation of Ivy's life, for the self serving needs of the Austin family, does balance out with some good intentions on their part.
When Ivy has to blow her nose, she does it cleanly; she does not blow her nose like a honking goose, then hand the snotty towel to Sidney. That showed good manners and sanitation.
Why would you hand someone a snotty anything, as they so often do in today's movies. That is just one of the gross things that many of today's audiences tolerate and think is funny/OK. It is not.
